Care Consultation Services
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


For families caring for a loved one with dementia, finding the right help can be overwhelming. As our region's dementia care specialists, we have created a care consultation program that delivers specialized assessment, support, and care consultation either in your home or at our office in Williamsville, NY.

A visit from an care consultant in your home will help you...

  • Understand dementia as it is affecting your loved one now and prepare you for the changes you may see in the future.
  • Learn the best way to respond when faced with challenges such as refusal of medication, agitation, or any other behaviors.
  • Manage day-to-day needs such as bathing and dressing.
  • Work through difficult transitions such as taking away driving privileges.
  • Make small changes to the home environment that can have a big impact on quality of life.
  • Make plans for the future.

If you rather come to our office for a care consultation, many of the same topics will be covered. However, the assessment of your home environment will not be conducted.

Our care consultants will provide you with:

  • An overview on the disease, warning signs, and symptoms.
  • A home environment assessment (in-home care consultation only).
  • Family care planning.
  • A written assessment with recommendations for you provided by the care consultant.
  • Information about local resources, our 24-hour Helpline and other services that the Alzheimer’s Association, WNY Chapter provides.

Setting up a care consultation in your home or at our office is simple. Call us at 1.800.272.3900. Our care consultant will talk with you about your individual situation and make a plan to address your particular needs and concerns.

Is there a charge? There is a modest fee for an in-home consultation. The rate for a 90 minute care consultation provided by a trained care consultant is $100.
